    Died Between 1794 and 1795 
    Notes 
    • It is thought that he was named in honor of Martine/Martin Meldrome, a paternal ancestor. He was married twice. He married first about 1769. Her name is not known but is thought by some researchers to have been a Miss Kempson. They settled in Edgefield County, SC. She died shortly after 1770, leaving one known son, John Steedman/Stidham. John was quite young and was placed in care of a Mister Rambo and his wife who are thought to be related to Martin's first wife.

      At the time of the 1790 census, Martin was listed, as Martin Stimmons, in Edgefield county, living alone, being a widower and owner of five slaves.

      About 1792, Martin married again to a woman named Frances (maiden name unknown). They had one child William.

      Martin died ("dropped dead while chopping wood") before 1800.
